{RALT} property

Post by itsjustc » Tue Nov 27, 2018 4:23 pm

XMBC Version: 2.17
Windows :
Mouse Information (Logitechl): Razer DeathAdder / Logitech MX Anywhere 2
Computer Information: -
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC or Windows?: No
How long have you used XMBC?: few months
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?: Spanish Bolivia



I want to hold down the Right Alt button for 120 Seconds but it won't work. What Can I do? Is it possible to have {RALT} for holding down purposes or only for combinations like CTRL+F4?
What I am trying right now: {HOLD:120}{RALT}{WAIT:1} "random key" {HOLD:120}{RALT} with simulated keys & Sticky

{RALT} like {ALT}, {CTRL}, {SHIFT} is a modifier tag that is applied to the subsequent (following) key
so {RALT}Y would press Right ALT + Y together.

I'm not sure its possible to send/hold just the {RALT} with no subsequent key - I'll have to have a look into the code to check (which I cant do now as I'm at work).

Yeah I was wondering if it was possible since it was only a modifier tag, would be great if you could look into that.

It would be great if it is possible to HOLD just the RALT button :D.

Take your time, not in a hurry.

Oh no, sorry not going to get a chance until at least the weekend...
Hopefully I'll find some time on Sat/Sun.

OK Its a bug.... {HOLD}/{HOLDMS} does not work with just a modifier.

I will fix that in the next beta but - and it could be a big but...
If you add a delay of 120 seconds, its going to block out all other XMBC simulated input for that time - so it may not be the most sensible thing to do :(.
